Carlo Ancelotti’s side have already beaten Atletico once this season — 2-1 away victory in LaLiga on Sept. 18 — and face them again in the league on Feb. 26.
Meanwhile, LaLiga leaders Barcelona, who cruised past Ceuta 5-0 on Thursday in their Copa game, host Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou.
Barca have won the Copa a record 31 times. Xavi Hernandez’s side ousted holders Real Betis on penalties in the previous round.
Elsewhere, Osasuna — the only team alive in the competition that has never lifted the Copa — host Sevilla, while Valencia go up against Athletic Bilbao.
The quarterfinals will be the last round played as a single game. The matches are scheduled between Jan. 24-26.
The Copa final will take place on May 6 at Seville’s La Cartuja stadium.
